The Barefoot Movement - Part 1

May 21, 2015

Young and shoeless, The Barefoot Movement has gained much attention and acclaim in a very short time.  The diversity of The Barefoot Movement draws in fans of bluegrass, folk, indie and rock and roll.  Singer-songwriter and fiddler Noah Wall began to piece the band together when she met mandolin player Tommy Norris in high school.  Wall found an upright bass player in Hasee Ciaccio when they were classmates at East Tennessee State University.  Just last week, Ciaccio completed her BA in Bluegrass, Old Time, and Country Music with a minor in Appalachian Studies!  Guitarist Alex Conerly completed the lineup in 2013 - the same year that The Barefoot Movement claimed first runner-up honors at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival's New Band Competition.  The Nashville based quartet played the Matthews Opera House in Spearfish in February.  This episode is just the first half of the show.  The second half airs next week on No Cover, No Minimum Radio!
